60g planted angelfish tank

Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you a tank I have had for years and recently rescaped it. This is a 60g tank that was my first planted tank. It has been through 8 or so different scapes over the last 7 years and this is the latest one. hope you all enjoy and if you have any opinions about the tank then please feel free to voice them.



tank: 60g tank
lighting: 3 18w par38 5000k led bulbs

light schedule: 5 on - 4 off - 5 on

filtration: eheim pro4+ 350
co2: none as of now
substrate: organic potting soil capped with pool filter sand
decor: seiryu stone and spider wood
heater: 200w eheim jager heater( set at )
fish: 5 angelfish and 7 rummynose tetras



I set the tank in this style scape using play sand which was a big mistake. To make a long story short diatoms and 3 different algae set in bad. I decided it was bad enough to pull everything and give it all a hydrogen peroxide bath and start again. 80% of the buce species I had died off from the algae and then they didnt like the h2o2 bath. Here it is now with these plants until I can get more buce in there. I am still in the process of figuring out where I want things planted.

Your hardscape looks great. Can’t wait to see it with more plants!

Glad you like it. 2 days ago I got a shipment of 6 buce(unknown species) that was actually 8 and I got a nice portion of bolbitis huedelotii. I also planted a few crypt walkeri and crypt becketii.

It's looking good! I hope things go better for you.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.

Ty and yes it has gone much better! Diatoms are at a minimum and algae is pretty much gone.

That they are and they seem to be. There are the occasions where they do their usual "get away from me" aggression but 95% of the time they cruise around as a group. Ty for the kind words.


Thank you very much to everyone who liked this. Glad I made a tank that is appealing to others. I always like to see that people enough my creation as much as I do. Hopefully my next pictures will be better with my new camera.
